Amnesty grading system disappoints

Posted by on | December 20, 2017 | No Comments

Numbers USA is a reliable site on the issues of illegal immigration, amnesty, birthright citizenship, the Visa lottery and chain migration. The organization gives report card grades to all U.S. House and Senate members. Founder & CEO Roy Beck’s illuminating “Gumballs” video has educated on these issues in an unrivaled manner. The pull down topics on the top of each page are well researched.

That’s why we are disappointed by the grading system used on, “Do Your Senators Support Giving Chain Migration to Yet Another Amnesty Group?

Using Arizona as an example, lame-duck Sen. Jeff Flake is correctly given a “YES.” His co-sponsorship of S. 1615, the DREAM Act of 2017 is cited among the reasons. Arizonans who pay attention are well aware that he is committed to giving a pass to those who enter our country illegally. He’s leaving the senate due to embarrassingly low polling numbers, but is still able to do damage for another year.

John McCain received a “Leans Yes” grade because he recently cosponsored S. 744, the Gang of 8’s amnesty bill, that would gift Chain Migration to illegal aliens who receive amnesty. The reason? “Sen. McCain does not receive a “YES” rating because he is not cosponsoring legislation in the current Congress that would do so.”

 This is an irrational rationale.  Throughout his overly long congressional career, McCain has been a committed amnesty proponent — favoring a “pathway to citizenship” — while giving the back of his hand to the rule of law by rewarding America’s invaders. Such actions only encourage further illegal entry. Prior to Flake entering the senate, by only three percentage points, his predecessor Jon Kyl partnered with McCain on repeatedly pushing what they euphemistically called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” code words for amnesty.

McCain does not deserve equivocation. When his close friend and senate colleague Ted Kennedy died, McCain recommitted to doing anything he could to “honor” leftist Kennedy by ensuring passage of what amounts to a gift of millions of voters to the Democrat Party. He said he would make sure the legislation would be named for Kennedy.

John McCain and Jeff Flake were the architects of the Gang of 8 amnesty legislation, in which they aligned with the senate’s most committed liberals, including Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) along with two other like-minded RINOs such as Marco Rubio. Flake has plans to resurrect this monstrosity before he leaves the senate in Nov. 2018. If the ailing McCain is able, he will be onboard. Numbers USA should know “pending legislation” should not be the sole criteria. Commitment is what counts. 

For a memory refresher, these were the blatant campaign lies told by Sens. Jon Kyl, John McCain and Jeff Flake. Immediately after the ballots were counted they reverted back to their former amnesty positions. .Newcomers to Arizona might be easily conned.  We expect Numbers USA to be more savvy.
